08 R6 Binned

Recommended Posts

howdy...just been for a nice ride with my good lady on the back, her first ever ride. a wagons over took a parked car on a blind bend, coming at us, the espace in front slammed on. me too but cos of her weight the backs come up and iv hit into the back of the bugger.

no one hurt, except a bit of a dead leg and so on but partner is good so thats main thing. bike isnt to bad i spose....see what insurance think of it. i reckn there just gonna blame me cos i ran in the back, thats always my reasoning. but what the hell is a wagon doing on my side of the road on a blind bend.

bastard!!

so got my eye on ebay, but if anyone knows of any or sees any 08 r6 bits, give us a shout please, would be most greatful. its all the front end stuff, fairings lights sub frame, mudguard.

cheers guys......and again... oh bugger

OMG!! Thats shitty! Glad yo are both ok though.

Will the Espace driver vouch for the wagon being on your side of the road? Did you get his number? If so pursue this!!

I hope you get your bike fixed soon.

espace driver says 100% on my side. but i think insurers tend to go with the general rule that if you couldnt stop in time for even the daftest of things, its your fault. see what equity red star say tomorrow. thing is, i wanna know either way so i can buy the bits myself.

the wagon was a council one, and on there policys, they tend to just say sod it and not bother arguing the case, or thats my experience in the few incidents iv been involved with.

if it is my fault, i think my insurance will be to high to bike for a few years, its bad enough now :( so heres hoping it works out.
